Boost likely to hydel power generation in AP

In Andhra Pradesh, copious inflow of floodwater from neighbouring Karnataka and Maharashtra has begun into the state's various reservoirs boosting storage levels and the prospect of power generation from hydel stations. Rain over the past two weeks both in the upper reaches and also in the catchment areas of the reservoirs have brought huge inflows into Godavari river in particular and now into reservoirs in Krishna river course.

The Almatti, Narayanpur and Thungabhadra dams are close to their top levels forcing authorities there to let out water lifting the crest gates. These projects have also begun to generate power. One of them, Tungabhadra dam, which has inter-State arrangement, is also contributing to the State’s power capacity. The inflows have been significant in the Krishna basin projects in the last week. All the gates at the Jurala project have been lifted and power generation commenced couple of days ago.

This has begun to add to huge inflows into the Srisailam reservoir, whose storage capacity has gone up from about 800 feet to close to 828 feet (on Wednesday morning) in less than a week. If the current trend continues, power generation is also likely to commence at Srisailam project where the minimum level for generation has been pegged at 834 as against a full reservoir level of 885 ft. Once power generation commences, water flow will add to the storage in the Nagarjunasagar dam down stream.
